so in my family, we all have the same christmas stockings....me my sis, my mom, my dad, my grandparents, my aunts and uncles and cousins....

i think they started with me and my sister though...my grandmother had knit them...and then my mom knit them for herself and my father and then everyone just had them (not sure who knit the rest)....

and then when my sister got married, my bil got one, then they had a son, mom knit him one, my neice- mom knit her one.....and back in the day, she had knit them for friends of the family (my parents have known them since high school) their whole family, so when 2 of theirs got married, their new spouses got one too, and of them just had a baby, so mom is knitting one for the baby....she also knit one for my cousin's husband and their boys too

aaaaaaaaaaanyways....here are what they look like....i love them! and i love that its such a tradition.....and obviously this is where i get my knitting from...my mom...




mine is 28 years old and my parents are probably older, i don't remember if they always had them...

LOOOVE THEM!

Your story AND the stockings remind me of my family! My grandmother knit my sister and myself stockings when we were born (respectively), and then my nephew got one when he was born and I LOVE that we all have handmade stockings that we have had since birth and never used anything else.
Your mom's style of the stockings/artwork really reminds me of our stockings too! Cheesy

no link to it...just a beat up 30 year old pattern typed up on a type writer....and my mom has made so many notes and revisions......i can't promise anything but after the holiday i can see if i can't type something up for you....(i'd do it now, but i've got alot on my plate.....)

i was wondering if anyone else would have these...that's neat!
i love how santa's beard is all furry....i think its angora....my mom had run out a few years ago of like a cheapy substitute and i picked up the real stuff for her once.....
